Bags

Baggu All Weather Bag

Originally designed for surfers, this all-weather gear bag has welded seams and a water resistant zipper to keep water completely in (or completely out, if that’s your goal). Surfers, just stand inside the bag to remove your wetsuit, then zip it up for your trip home. Sand and seawater will be safely contained within. Everyone else, know that whatever you put in the bag will stay dry no matter what (within reason).

Welded Backpack

Not happy with your backpack/bag? Here’s yet another minimal option for your consideration, and this one is delightfully simple in its design. The Welded backpack from Aether* is lightweight, has an interior laptop pocket, padded straps, and weatherproof zippers. Maybe you’ll use it for hauling your computer back and forth from the office, or maybe you’ll take it with you on your next day hike or weekend trip. Either way, you’ll look quietly cool and you’ll be comfortable.

Le Paname Adjustable Garden Tote

Adjustable side zippers make the Le Paname Adjustable Garden Tote the perfect companion for all sorts of chores. Zip one side down to accommodate larger fare, like branches from the garden, or keep both sides up for use as a city or beach tote. It’s made from Bacsac’s signature geotextile fabric, so it’s ultra-light, durable and very versatile.

Minimalist Folio

Well, isn’t this a nice surprise. It’s a Minimalist Folio that costs under $50. The fact that it’s made from polyurethane could be good or bad, depending on your aversion or preference to leather, but I think we’ll all agree that this kind of price point is very welcome. The medium size easily holds a tablet and notebook, while the large will fit a 13″ laptop. A small pouch holds the smaller essentials and two peg-in-hole fastenings keep the coverlet closed. Choose between Blush, Navy and Pewter.

Invisible Backpack

So, the good news is there are lots of simple backpacks available in the marketplace. The bad news is that you’ll have a hell of a time picking out the right one for you. Add the Invisible Backpack to your list of considerations, because it has that under-the-radar look we all love along with five different compartments for stashing your stuff. The wider top edge distributes the weight more evenly and gives you more room for easier access.

Passenger: A Rolltop Duffel

Another duffel? Yeah, well, we all know how you go to the gym every single day (right?) and need a perfect place to keep your gear, or the way you’re always setting off for a weekend trip and need a simple bag to stash your oh-so-cool outfits. Bags are a very personal sort of thing and little details matter, so you might not have found the perfect one yet. However, you’ll have to add this one to your list, as it has an expandable rolltop design so it will fit the occasion, big or small. Two accessory pockets and a storable shoulder strap make it more functional, while leather wrapped handles up the ante in the looks department.

Urban Kraft Paper Bags

Judging by the state of your wardrobe, you might want to wear a paper bag. Whoa, calm down, I didn’t mean that in an offensive way. These Urban Kraft bags are made of paper -really strong paper- and have a look that will appeal to the more discerning eye. There are several different sizes and types of bags and they’re all at a rather reasonable price point. Take a look at the Duffle, for instance. It’s water resistant, easy to carry, a good size at 13″x22″, and comes in just under the $100 mark.

Leoht Tote

A handbag? I know, I know, we don’t normally post handbags, but stick with me here, because this particular one has something that’s worth talking about. It may not be enough to convince you (or the others around you) to abandon your (their) current It Bag, but it does offer some pretty cool technology that we’re hoping will soon catch on when it comes to luxury brands.

Black Ember Modular Urban Backpacks

Do you want to look like you’re on a some sort of urban military mission? That’s what I think of when I see Black Ember Modular Urban Backpacks and the various mag-lock pouches and accessories that may be added. The three packs offered are certainly more sleek and resolved than the previous design, and the modular nature of the mag-lock pouches is a smart way to customize how you carry your gear. Pick your base pack (Slate, TL, or Neoruk), then add on pouches, cases, and accessories to fit all your must-have stuff.

Aer Fit Pack

Still searching for a simple, functional backpack that holds your workout gear and your laptop stuff? Take a look at the Aer Fit Pack. It’s designed to keep your sweaty stuff separate from the technology and papers you carry around, all in a compact size and style that’s suitable for both men and women. Shoes have a separate pocket, and there’s a handy quick access top pocket for your smartphone or keys.

Library Card Tote Bag

Do you recognize the card image on this tote bag? Congratulations, you are officially old and wise. If you don’t immediately recognize it, then I’ll do the patronizing thing and explain it to you as if you were an idiot a child.

Stuff Rubber Bag

We posted this years and years ago (c.2007), and it’s still one of my favorite reusable bags. Designed by Sylvain Willenz, each Stuff bag is made out of 100% natural rubber latex- that means it’s stretchable and washable. It could be your everyday extra bag, perfect for stashing (or stuffing) extra things/purchases instead of using those oh-so-icky plastic shopping bags.

Reika Leather Bag Honey by Elk

Perforated material is a good thing most of the time, and this Reikä Tote makes the most of it by using perforations as a pattern. Made from raw, washed cow hide, it’ll withstand your every day wear and tear; a small zipped pouch on the inside keeps smaller wallets or other accessories secure.

Soffio Card Wallet

There’s no shortage of wallets, yet to find the perfect wallet is still a goal for many. Soffio’s Card Wallet is quite simple- just a leather pocket really- and has a handy thumb spot to easily retrieve your cards and cash. Also, be sure to take a look at their iPhone skins (one shown below) as well, as they’d be a great option for keeping your essential cards with you on the go.
